Gonorrhoea, also known as "the clap", is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by bacteria called Neisseria gonorrhoeae or gonococcus. Gonorrhoea is a less common sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the UK than chlamydia, genital warts or genital herpes, however there is an increase in diagnosed cases. Around 1 in 10 infected men and almost 50% of infected women don't experience any symptoms. If left untreated, gonorrhoea can lead to more serious long-term health problems including infertility.
